Outstretch your arms and legs…

So after playing an awful lot of Punch Out for the Wii recently I finally discovered a game in which I can have fun AND have a workout! I actually have a regimented workout schedule that I follow semi regularly however this game seems to provide just as much, if not more of a workout for me while being 10x as fun!

I’ve not really gotten into or understood the concept of fitness games like Wii Fit (which funnily enough I am also getting soon) as I’m much more of a casual sit down and play games kind of guy. Interaction and motion control seemed like a silly gimmick to me however in games such as Punch Out I really understand what they were going for with it. Not only is it fun to flail your arms around pretending you are a boxer but it actually provides a good workout! (for your arms anyway)

So what do you all think of exercise games, or games that at least make you work for your gameplay. Do you find them silly or enjoyable? Share in the comments! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
